Barney and I walked at first. I did have ambition to walk all the way to the lock but gave in after just under a mile and a half. We signalled for our pick up at bridge 17 and this was managed better than usual. Barney does insist on the boat being at a dead stop before he will climb aboard!

|as you can see..........|
|Our crew working well!!|
|Ambitious sign painting|
|Today's heron was very brave and did not fly off until we were almost past him.|
After a nice long stretch with the first of our narrow locks we reached Burton on Trent and moored in Shobnall Fields.
|Huge recreational area and good mooring place both for us and for the important member of the crew......|
Average speed:2.15 mph (2.59 lock/mph)
